COVID-19 vaccine update

Vaccinations are now underway in BC. Please be advised that the COVID-19 vaccine is not available for everyone at this time.

With limited vaccine supplies, first doses are being provided to those most at risk, starting with elderly residents in long-term care facilities and staff who care for them, as well as health care providers working in ICUs, ERs and COVID medical wards.

Other priority groups will receive the vaccine in the coming weeks. The latest information on timing and vaccine delivery can be found at the BCCDC website here.

The general public will be vaccinated later this year, watch for information from the Provincial Health Officer on when this will start.

Thank you for your patience, and please continue to do all you can to prevent spread of the virus, and to keep you and your loved ones safe.

This means wearing a mask when you’re out, staying six feet from others, limiting contact to those living in your household, and washing your hands frequently.
